Kefelonia is great, We were trying to get there this year but have had to abandon the idea for now.
As a general rule - I would say if you want sandy beaches then best visit the south of the island, which is more comercialised in general. But for the views - you really need to be north - Assos is my all time favourite - but is a little cut off and very quiet although its stunning. The "resorts" of Fiskardo and Aghia Efimia are also great - but for Me Assos hits the spot everytime. You will, however struggle to find accomadodation with a pool there.

Oh thanks everyone. Loads more tips. I think we'll stay in Lassi. Still looking at flights. On charter flights.co.uk there is a Saturday departure from LGW - does anyone know what airline this might be with so that we can look at booking directly?
One more question; are there any boat trips or can you hire the litte boats like you can on the beach in Corfu?

Hi JackieB,if you want to find a cheap flight to Kefalonia from London,try Matin Lewis Money Saving Expert.Com or FlightChecker.com we got a good deal for our flights in July,if you try Martin Lewis he also has links to other money saving flight sites.Yes you can hire boats for the day,and are well worth the effort as you will be able to get to the beaches that are not accessable from the road,just take plenty of liquid refreshments and something to eat, and enjoy a beach to yourselfs.The flights from London are most likely with either Airtours,Mytravel,Argo or Thomas Cook,we booked ours from Manchester with Thomas Cook Direct.Hope this helps,have fun and get that holiday booked,you won't regret it.If you want to see some photos of Kefalonia look at our profile on this site we have put some on of our time on the Island.
